Why Does Call of Duty Continue to Sell So Well?

Call of Duty (COD)has become so widely renowned, that anybody on the streets will recognize the name, just as much as someone recognises the word ‘McDonalds’.  Back in 2003, critics and gamers alike raved about how amazing and realistic the first game was. It had gained universal acclaim, and surely this warranted a release for a sequel. After Call of Duty 2 received good reviews, it was just a matter of time before the third one was released, and then the fourth, fifth and so on. Call of Duty: Black Ops II marks the 9th game in the series, and […]

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost is an anime feature film tie-in set in the Mass Effect universe. Available to buy through Madman Entertainment, Paragon Lost is a collaborative effort by Bioware and Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, Kill Bill: Vol 1).

Devil May Change – Fan reaction to the new DmC

The idea for this article came about after talking to a friend over the negative fan reaction that continues over the new Devil May Cry.  Reviews have been coming in over Ninja Theory’s reboot, and they are mostly positive (we gave it a 7.5).  The friend I was speaking with was frustrated with fans that were going to miss out on a good game over their hatred over the new look. For the record I agree, it is very petty to shun something simply because you like the old one better.  However, I can see their point even though I […]

Far Cry 3 Review

Far Cry 3 is a deep, violent and drug-fuelled venture into a lush, tropical island with an unforgiving and dominant underworld. Aside from Rook Island’s dark pretences, you play how you want to play, do exactly what you want to do and as a result your experience will be entirely unique. You can fight your way through the main quest armed with the weapon of your choosing, or maybe explore ancient ruins, dive into mysterious caves, tackle bullsharks or walk among locals. Rook Island is yours – well, aside from the pirates, madmen and an inescapable principle of violence.

Hitman: Absolution – Welcome Back 47. You were sorely missed.

I’ve been a fan of Hitman and Agent 47 since the first game on PC and the subsequent releases on the PS2 and 360.  I enjoyed the freedom the game allowed within the game to achieve your goals as you see fit.  But I’ll be the first to admit, the stories were rather bare and at times the rather clunky controls a frustrating experience.  But you just couldn’t argue with a game that offered you so many ways to do things, especially when you could do them in style.  Absolution, however, merges that freedom of choice with a fairly amazing […]

Halo 4: A Beginning and an End

(WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) Halo and I go back a long way.  There isn’t a franchise I’ve spent more time over the last decade playing, discussing, or thinking about.  It is, maybe more than any other title, how I identify myself as a gamer.  So when Halo’s creator, Bungie, decided to relinquish control of the franchise to 343 Industries, I was worried.  Actually, mortified might be a better word.  What would happen to Master Chief and Cortana?  How would the game play change?  What would be added?  What would be taken away?  How could a brand new studio, unknown and untested, […]

Too Many Rabbits

Every one of us has a unique style of gaming.  How we play, what we play; it makes us all feel different things at different times.  Some of us are drawn to shooters, others to MMOs, others to casual mobile games that kill ten minutes of time on the bus.  Informing that are our differing lifestyles, different habits, and different goals.  I’ve started wondering lately just how my gaming style affects my life, or vice versa, and I’m finding some interesting, occasionally unnerving comparisons.
